    My wife's objection is that it will obstruct the view of the bay window...

    With 6 TB of collection, you don't need bandwidth...

    Do you mean pumped dry? Anyway, it would be interesting to do StringFest 101 - Chicago and put it on YouTube.

    SH, just buy the bloody thing already. Of all the machines I have tried, the ES5 is definitely the "Rolls Royce" - built like a tank yet silky smooth and so precise. With the badminton conversion in place the mounting system simply cannot be beaten.

    Once you get it, make sure you post 100 pictures just to rub it in our faces. Heh, at least it's not a Protech (which would have made me really angry).

    Personally, I would NOT go for a second hand machine of this caliber. Unless U are sure to know the correct history of course. After reading many of yr posts/threads, u seem to be a pro. As such, treat yourself to a new machine if u want to upgrade. I don't mean to offend anyone here, mind u. Just my feel.

    Kiloo,

    E-X-A-C-T-L-Y!

    Man, you are direct! I just hit around the bush...but you've said it! As my inference was, SH is pretty loaded he is just being prudent and wise with his dough.

    P.S. Unless it is at basement-bargain price but it isn't. Again, please don't take offense SH. We are all family at BadmintonCentral.

    Dear Metal Orange,
    1) thank you for your directness and constructive advice is well taken.
    2) I do not have too much money to spend. That is why I am debating for the Es5Protech (yes it has bee verified that it is Protech)
    3) Yes, I know exactly where the machine has been and how it has been used. I am pretty sure it has less than 100 racquets strung on it and has full 1 year warranty from the Evil Empire. (yes it is good to be a double agent.)
    4) I just want to use the certified Lexus as example. If the deal is a certified loaded Lexus GS for $35,000 USD with less than 5,000 mile on it with all the warranty from Lexus, will you buy it?

    My struggle has been, do I really need it? I am fine at home with a portable. If I need to use the big boy, I need to drive 40 min to pro-shop to use it. Another reason for me to get it is my friends get the benefit of having all their racquet strung with it. Well, how will it effect my charity business? should I charge $2 more per string job for it so Peter the Greatest can stay in the badroom with the ES5Pro and mount his racquet all night long? (Pete's answer, yes! and extra stiff please...) The last struggle is I know Evil Empire will have another one like this for sale about the same price next year. Should I wait? Jiminy Cricket keep telling me to wait. Little Pete on the left side keep yelling get it because it just feel so good...

    Somebody up there is taunting me. Still, I suppose you could get something new for significantly less money (SP Opus, Star 5, even a Sensor), so perhaps my previous post was a bit... vicarious.

    well, since the sky is still falling, i suggest u have room to wait.
    Take the funds and put it into AUS$, euro or CAN$. By next year, u can buy this same machine cheaper becoz the USD would likely depreciated some more by then.
